UFC 267 Best Betting Picks: Big Event With Bigger Betting Payouts

UFC 267 Best Betting Picks: Big Event With Bigger Betting Payouts

Jan Blachowicz defends his light heavyweight title against Glover Teixeira as the challenger follows a similar long-winded path to a potential title. While in the co-main event, Petr Yan looks to reclaim his bantamweight belt after a contentious disqualification cost him against now-champion Aljamain Sterling. This plus an underdog looks to score a big upset as we look at the UFC 267 best bets.

The Polish champion, Jan Blachowicz (28-8-0) will defend his title against Glover Teixeira (32-7-0) and will be a betting favourite for the first time since fighting Jacare Souza in 2019. Alternatively, the bantamweight “paper” champion Aljamain Sterling (20-3-0) is the dog against challenger Petr Yan (15-2-0). 

Also on the card is a welterweight bout between Li Jingliang (18-6-0) welcoming back Khamzat Chimaev (9-0-0) who is returning after a year of layoff due to battling the COVID virus. This is a dangerous fight for Chimaev and has the makings of an upset while Blachowicz and Yan could combine to make a lucrative parlay bet. 

We’ll break down the fights in more detail. But first, a quick look at the betting odds for the main fights per the Betway sportsbook:

UFC 267 Picks & Predictions

Our UFC 266 picks are on deck and we’re looking to cash on two title fights and an underdog bet. In a similar mould, this UFC 267 is set up in the same way. But instead, we parlayed the two title fight winners and bet on an even larger underdog. If all goes well, we’re looking to walk away with a sizable profit.  

UFC Light Heavyweight Championship: Jan Blachowicz (1.36) vs Glover Teixeira (3.20)

Congratulations if you’ve been riding Blachowicz as he has been a cash cow as an underdog. However, he’ll be a significant favourite against Teixeira here and has little value as a straight bet. Blachowicz is expected to handle business against the fellow veteran.

But Teixeira is no walk in the park and has some value as an underdog. He can wrestle, unlike most of Blachowicz’s past opponents so this makes matters more complicated for the Pole. Still, Blachowicz has the power advantage here and he can put Teixeira away with a well-placed counter.

SBR’s pick — Blachowicz (1.36). This match can get sweaty if you chalk Blachowicz. In fact, betting Blachowicz by decision at 3.40 is a better choice. Otherwise, take Blachowicz and throw him in a parlay as he should be able to do more damage to Teixeira to earn a decision.

UFC Bantamweight Championship: Aljamain Sterling (3.40) vs Petr Yan (1.29)

There is little evidence to indicate this fight will be much different than the first where Yan was beating up Sterling until the unfortunate disqualification. Sterling may try to adjust and preserve his energy here, which will only play into Yan’s style as the Russian is by far the better technician. 

Otherwise, the champion can also try to overwhelm Yan with a heavy wrestling style as he did the first time. Yan will likely defend, tire out “Aljo”, and take over the longer the fight goes again. 

SBR’s pick — Yan (1.29). Yan received action the moment this line opened as he was the rightful winner of the first bout. Still, a straight bet on him at this price is too juiced. Instead, parlay him or bet for him to win by T/KO at 2.55. 

Parlay: Blachowicz (1.36) and Yan (1.29) at 1.75 

Welterweight: Li Jingliang (3.60) vs Khamzat Chimaev (1.25)

Here we have an upset in the works. Li is being slept on against Chimaev, who has considerable hype even if he may be a shell of himself.

Li already came through as an underdog against former top-ten fighter Santiago Ponzinibbio and is a beast of a fighter. He is big, durable, and packs plenty of power. Of course, if Chimaev is still the same fighter he is much savvier and also just as powerful.   

SBR’s pick — Li (3.60). This is a “dog or pass” situation. It’s hard to trust Chimaev at this price, but Li could cash as a sizable dog here again. All it takes is one good shot from Li. He is wild and flaky, but a diminished Chimaev could be ripe for the picking.
